Today was one of those crystal blue Colorado Fall days that makes one glad to be alive. Autumn colors, happy people out on the street, clear sky and perfect slightly crisp temperatures. Everyone was out with their bikes and dogs and kids. I love this time of year, and I hope you are having a beautiful weekend also. I heard that John Denver song "Rocky Mountain High" wafting over Pearl Street today, and it brought a little tear to my eye.
We can only wonder how the history books will describe this period of time - of social upheaval and environmental angst. I am in the process of planning for the final exhibit of my curated exhibit "For the Love of Gaia" which has been affected by these events....inspired by conservation activists, but hindered by Covid challenges. The exhibit started at the Intl Quilt Museum in Lincoln Nebraska (with a virtual opening), then traveled to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham England. Soon the quilts will travel to the New England Quilt Museum, where I will finally be able to see them all together in one space. (I am giving a presentation on the last day, at a closing reception.) Once again I must thank the artists in this project for their patience as our project unfolded during challenging circumstances.
These limitations and changes of plan are bittersweet but miniscule compared to the challenges that others have faced over the last 18 months. We are so grateful to be part of the quilting community which has remained strong and active throughout the last year.
I have decided not to attend the Quilt Festival in Houston this year, however I know many of you are still going. I will be there in spirit, because we are a major sponsor. We continue to support Quilts Inc, the organizers of this event...and we congratulate ALL of the quilt artists whose work will hang in the show this month.
The $5000 eQuilter Master Award for Contemporary Art has been given to Kestrel Michaud her amazing art quilt "Leap of Faith".
We are also sponsoring 2 other Special Exhibits - "Access Delayed: African-American Suffragists' Courageous Influence on the 19th Amendment", and "Together in Unity".
You can see links to the winning quilts and special exhibit listings here on our Blog.
For those of you attending the event, I would appreciate if you would send photos of Kestrel with her quilt under our banner, and also photos of our sponsor logo sign with the other 2 special exhibits. I need to stay home to keep our 30 employees, and our family safe. Thank you for understanding.
...sharing your love of fabric,
Luana and Paul
